Why it’s important to protect the Boreal Forest

Today on Care2, I watched this short but very informative video about the Canadian Boreal Forest. I realize that not everyone thinks like me and protecting something because it is part of nature isn’t always descriptive enough. By protecting one place or species, like the Boreal Forest, you are protecting so much more. This video […]






Sign to keep grizzly bears in Yellowstone safe

I was so pleased to see that the majority of you that voted in the poll said that you take action on these types of posts! I was thinking that only those who comment and maybe a handful of others signed, but seeing the results of the poll leaning mostly one way made me realize […]

Tea in the morning

I start every morning with a cup of green tea. I drink a variety of teas throughout the day, but I always make sure that my first tea of the day is green. Why green? There are many reasons. The most important being that green tea is one of the healthiest of all teas, if […]






Click-to-donate

As soon as I get online, first I check my email and then I do my daily clicks. They only take a couple minutes but they’re so worth it! (I must add here, though, that the amount of time it takes probably also depends on your internet connection and how distracted you get during each […]
